  • Reduced growth of soybean seedlings after exposure to weak microwave radiation from GSM 900 mobile phone and base station

          Reduced growth of soybean seedlings after exposure to weak microwave radiation from GSM 900 mobile phone and base station

    Distribution of Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) in a soybean of 15 mm long oriented with the long (z-) axis along the propagation direction of the RF radiation (k-polarization) according to the long wavelength approximation (see text). The soybean is approximated as a prolate spheroid with a diameter of 7.5 mm.

  • Application of the planar-scanning technique to the near-field dosimetry of millimeter-wave radiators

    Application of the planar‐scanning technique to the near‐field dosimetry of millimeter‐wave radiators

    Top views of the field amplitude (|Ex|) and phase (ϕE) on the scan plane. The resolution of the images is 1 mm for a point-to-point grayscale representation of the values. The measured amplitude is scaled down so that the value at the center is the same as that from the numerical calculation.

  • Assessment of human body influence on exposure measurements of electric field in indoor enclosures

    Assessment of human body influence on exposure measurements of electric field in indoor enclosures

    Position of the personal exposure meter (PEM) with respect to the human body, and angular sectors of acceptance and rejection of rays. Cross section of the human body model at 1.45 m (Visible Human Project from [Spitzer et al., ]).

  • The discrepancy between maximum in vitro exposure levels and realistic conservative exposure levels of mobile phones operating at 900/1800 MHz

    The discrepancy between maximum in vitro exposure levels and realistic conservative exposure levels of mobile phones operating at 900/1800 MHz

    Details of the commercially available phone model and the numerical model derived from it.

  • Human exposure from pulsed magnetic field therapy mats: A numerical case study with three commercial products

    Human exposure from pulsed magnetic field therapy mats: A numerical case study with three commercial products

    B-field at a distance of 1.5 cm above the mat surface from (a) measurements and (b) numerical calculations. Results are reported for the three PMFT mats: (left) System A, (middle) System B, and (right) System C.

  • Measurements of the ripple effect and geometric distribution of switched gradient fields inside a magnetic resonance scanner

    Measurements of the ripple effect and geometric distribution of switched gradient fields inside a magnetic resonance scanner

    Geometry of the MRI with planes indicating measurement areas.

Cell Morphology

There is an increased public awareness about the potential health hazards of exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) [Zhadin, 2001; Hardell and Sage, 2008; Frei et al., 2012]. The influence of magnetic and electric fields on organs, tissues, and cells has been investigated during the past 30 years [Ottani et al., 1988; King, 1999; Funk et al., 2009]. EMF is reported to influence a wide variety of biological systems such as bone, skin and hematologic. For example, several in vitro studies have suggested that EMF affects the cellular physiology of many types of human cells [Masiuk et al., 2008; Sullivan et al., 2011]. In physical medicine, particularly, low frequency EMF has been applied clinically for early healing of wounds and certain musculocutaneous and musculotendinous lesions. However, most of these clinical studies are based on experience rather than scientific evidence.
